Keyshia Cole was the second performer to hit the mainstage at Saturday’s ESSENCE Music Festival. The veteran singer stormed the stage to a roaring applause as she belted out “Shoulda Let You Go.” Cole ran through favorite after favorite from her 5 album catalog.
After taking a break to change outfits, Keyshia paid homage to the late Etta James by singing a snippet of “At Last.” She transitioned into “Love,” off her debut album, The Way It Is, and asked fans which song she should perform (“I Remember” or “Trust & Believe”) for she wanted to do both but the set timer on stage was running out. The crowd roared for “Trust & Believe.” With only two minutes on the clock, Keyshia closed her set with a short version of her hit, “Let It Go.”
